Visited the light house and premises with my family. Even though we didnt have access to the top of the light house, the visit was really nice experience. My daughter enjoyed the interiors.

Well priced, well organized visit that gets you the opportunity to see some of Victoria's history and some of the best ocean views around. Was expecting some good museums but not the great beaches and walkways. Easily accessible for all levels of fitness.

Yes, the parking is the same area, whether you are visiting the lighthouse or the buildings. Well worth the visit! And it is free this year, because of the Canada 150.

Hi Yes I think it was plus I think there was a ramp up to the actual house rather than use stairs.
